So Brave, Young, and Handsome - Leif Enger

I don't know what I expected when I got this book. For some reason I thought it was about war and soldiers.  Instead, its a tale of the West, maybe the 30's, when a one-hit author, Martin, leaves with a mysterious neighbor, Glendon, to redeem Glendon's past.  In their travels we learn about love and loss, regret and forgiveness.  Toward the end, Glendon observes:

"It's peculiar, to reach your destination.  You think you'll arrive and perform the thing you came for and depart in contentment.  Instead you get there and find distance still to go".
